I am moving right along on this. I guess I really needed a "small" to work on after a three month exclusive focus on a BAP. It's so nice to see something come together quickly instead inch by inch. And doing some satin stitching and plait stitching is nice after cross stitching for three months. I have finished all the stitching with silk floss and now I get to play with silk ribbon stitching spider web roses and seed stitched leaves along the vine separating the stitchers. I'll finish up with a few beads as charted. Oh, my! The variety! I just may swoon.
And being able to put up my first finish of the year in the sidebar by this evening ... well, that's a nice bonus, too. I can't remember a time since I began stitching some 45 years ago that I was so far into the new year without a finish.
